Turning Off the Taps

Turning Off the Taps

an intention leads to action
protection, conservation
and we turn off the taps
hoping to encourage more conversation

supplies are not unlimited
perhaps they come and go
even sometimes seasonal
an interrupted flow

the sharing and protection
of every single thing
brings an appreciation of
how precious the gifts they bring

the taps turned off
protecting the supply, the source
giving time to rebalance
and then to chart a new course

sometimes the very climate
that we find ourselves in
can damage how all is supplied
shutting down the ability to deliver
all that once was prized

turning off the taps
is always a choice
sustainability and balance
so we may share and rejoice
